When still involved in the heat of a developing situation, I don't take anything as definitive until such time as I see the evidence for myself. Often that means waiting for the trial.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
It's also funny to note that you take these "eyewitness" accounts at face value, without question. There is a reason why this story is not getting much attention - it is meaningless. Absolutely meaningless. An orbital blowout fracture (whether it was swelling, or a orbital fracture) does not render you immobile and unable to perform simple tasks 3 days after the incident. The majority of blowout fractures heal without complications or long-term problems. Wilson had it treated in the hospital and more than likely iced it down to reduce swelling. Get a grip and stop pathetically grasping to unverified, loose allegations.
What is hilarious about this thread is the OP uses a source from Little Green Footballs to discredit Gateway Pundit. Now that's funny.
CNN's report of Wilson not having a fracture to his eye socket claim they verified this from UN-NAMED sources. So how in the heck does that make CNN's story any more valid?
Secondly- When the Police Chief was asked about Wilson's injuries specifically the fractured orbital bones, he responded by saying the side of Wilson's face was swollen and he was taken to the hospital to have it checked out. He offered no more information because it would be violating the officer's privacy to report on the details of his medical condition. You can bet your sweet bippy that plenty of pictures were taken of the swollen face and the medical examiner's report will be detailed and NO ONE will be privy to that information until the grand jury convenes.
Thirdly- those of you hell bent on portraying Wilson guilty on the basis of a few so called eyewitness reports, might want to think twice about that one. Seems the star witness that started all the stuff about Brown being "shot in the back", "hands up", "gunned down like an animal" has a few credibility issues when it comes to telling the truth and a history of stealing.....the same illegal activity that Johnson and Brown were engaged in just prior to Brown's death.
